SharePoint 2013: ShareWithEveryone Error When Creating a Site from a Solution
I was experiencing the following error in SharePoint 2013 trying to create a new web from a solution that had been uploaded to the Template Gallery for a site collection.
“Problem applying web template”. “This web template required that certain features be installed, activated and licensed. The following problems are blocking application of the template:”
Turns out that the site collection was upgraded and as a result did not have the Share With Everyone feature enabled by default.
To enable the ShareWithEveryone feature you need to save the following PowerShell to a .ps1 file and run it for each site collection that has been upgraded from SharePoint 2010:
[sourcecode language=”powershell” wraplines=”false” collapse=”false”]
$siteUrl = "https://www.contoso.com/sites/yoursitename" #URL of site collection
$site = Get-SPSite $siteUrl
#Need to put this on a new line if in a file
